I updated Azureus at home to the Vuze interface a couple of weeks ago. Vuze is a open source platform for the sharing of high definition video content (and more). The interface is very slick looking with buttons for the various channels and thumbnails of the videos available. Here’s a picture of the Vuze interface on the Azureus website. The actually program UI looks very similar.
A new download window is also presented. It is extremely simplified compared to the previous versions of Azureus. While “pretty”, I find this view to be useless, so I still use the “advanced” interface to manage my downloads. BTW: There is now the ability to download series to specific folders via the RSS feed filter tab. Yippee!
To be honest, I haven’t fully explored the Vuze yet because there was no programming available that I wanted offered through any of the channels. Today I see there is some worthy content, so I will take a look and write more on this. In the mean time, here’s a link to Vuze so you can play with it yourself.
